The Space Adventure with Nick Weaver (Thumbles Comic)

Sometimes calling something a game is a rather strong use of the word. Especially when you’re looking at it through American eyes. Double especially back in the early to mid 1990s when we just didn’t really have the concept of visual novels over here.

Listen in as Nick Weaver, creator of the Thumbles comic on Webtoon, joins the show to help take a look at a portion of the gaming medium that we didn’t have much context for based on a manga that we also didn’t have much context for over on this side of the world.

Learn such things as:

  • Why did we get this in America?
  • No for real, because this makes no sense.
  • I can’t decide if I like this or not, that’s not a question, and I don’t care.
  • And so much more!

You can find Nick on Twitter @thumbles_comic, on Instagram @thumbles_comic, plus profiles on Webtoon, Reddit, and Facebook.
